Jonathan Toews ’05 Wins Third Stanley Cup

June 16, 2015

Former Sabre leads Blackhawks to their third Stanley Cup in six years.

Getting to hold the Stanley Cup once in your career is something a lucky few get to do. Getting to do it three times over the course of six seasons is almost unheard of. Last night, Jonathan Toews, captain of the Chicago Blackhawks and SSM ’05 alum, did just that. The Blackhawks clinched the coveted cup with a 2-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Lighting in Chicago, giving them the chance to hoist the cup on home ice for the first time in 77 years. The captain tallied one goal and two assists in the final series, making for a total of ten goals and eleven assists in the playoffs run. The Conn Smythe trophy, two Olympic gold medals, and one world championship medal also accompany Toews’ (now) three Stanley Cup victories.
